Mask Monday: Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque

Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque ReviewPIN IT

Aesop is another one of those skincare brands where everything I’ve tried I’ve loved, and there really is a lot to love! They do some of the loveliest masks available, all beautifully packaged in apothecary-style, brown glass bottles with simple text that tells you everything you need to know.  I’ve been completely converted to gel masks recently, since I think they are ideal for skin types that suffer from a number of issues, such as those who are both dry and spotty, or sensitive and oily, or any combination of the above.  Consequently, I was very pleased to crack open the Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque and find it was in gel form.

The Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque is a cooling and hydrating mask with a strong lavender fragrance.  I really like the pump-action bottle, which is quite a rare find for mask packaging.  You use it by simply applying a layer and leaving it on for as long as you like – the recommendation is 30 minutes but you can definitely go for longer without any issues. You can then either wash it off, or use a cotton pad soaked in toner to remove any remaining residue.  I personally find the latter approach of most benefit to my skin as I think washing it off can undo some of the good work.  It contains Niacinamide which is a great ingredient for tricky skin, especially those who are spot-prone.  This just feels like a great all-rounder that would benefit most skin types, and is particularly great for when skin is feeling stressed, sensitive, parched or you’ve overdone it with the acids.  I’m currently giving myself a chemical peel treatment each week and I like to follow with something both hydrating and soothing like this.  You can find the Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque here – link  – for £33.
